This is me camped at Death Valley in the 1950s. I'm the little speck of kid in the middle of the photo, sitting on the step of what appears to be a big tent, but which is actually a primitive tent trailer. My mother is bending over, cooking. Notice her camping attire: a dress! I assume my father took the photo. The trailer was made by J.C. Higgins which I believe was Sears' brand. Looking it brings two words to mind: Mutt Ugly!
I have been back to Death Valley about a dozen times since this photo was taken and plan to go again maybe even this year. Now I camp in a comfy motorhome, which is better than that old tent trailer by about a million light years.
